One of the World’s Greatest Book Fairs Kicks Off Today in Frankfurt

It’s become an enormous annual tradition: The massive Frankfurt Book Fair kicks off today, running through October 18, and welcoming upwards of a quarter-million book industry guests from all around the world. From self-publishing authors to famous authors to agents, talent scouts and publishing giants, anyone and everyone is drawn to this massive, annual international event.

The Frankfurt International Book Fair is by far the largest and most important book fair in the world. While other international book events could exceed Frankfurt’s 250,000-plus attendance, the multi-hall, mile-long fairground in Frankfurt hosts the largest contingent of publishing professionals of any book fair anywhere, bar none.

The Frankfurt Book Fair is a meeting place for the industry’s experts: publishers, booksellers, agents, film producers and, of course, authors just like you. With more than 7,300 exhibitors from 100 countries, upward of 250,000 visitors and more than 10,000 journalists, it is the most important marketplace for books, media, rights and licenses worldwide.

The Frankfurt International Book Fair is held in mid-October annually at the Frankfurt Fair in Frankfurt, Germany. While it’s too late to get in on this year’s event, slated for October 14-18, we can help you get your existing and as-yet-unpublished books ready by next summer — plenty of time to take part in the 2016 Frankfurt International Book Fair!

Remember, you can save 25% on four major book events throughout the year (London, BEA, Beijing, Frankfurt) with our Global Book Tour marketing package.

“Everyone has been so nice and helpful. I look forward to publishing more of my books with you.”

I know how it feels to be judged by the way I look. I am missing both middle fingers from birth. I never understood, as a young boy, why people treated me so different just because I was missing my middle fingers. It was like I had a disease that others would catch. The only reason I knew I was different was because that is what people told me. I have had people hit, spit and call me all sorts of mean names just because they were afraid of what they did not know. I always knew that I am no different from any of you ten-finger people. We are all human. “Sorry” never helped me.”

– Mark D. Hadley, author of I’m Sorry
